|ERIC ED341274: Analyzing Service Encounters Cross-Culturally: Methodological Considerations. - ERIC|
Two approaches to analyzing service encounters (instances of face-to-face interaction between a server designated in a particular area and a customer receiving service from the server) are examined. Some linguists view service encounters as business transaction texts. The two approaches are the "top-down" approach, in which linguists make direct observations of service encounters in various stores and focus on transactional speech, and the "bottom-up" approach, in which the focus is on both tran...

The variety of cultures represented by international teaching assistants (ITAs) demands a skillful accommodation of intercultural information to assist effective adaptation for the American classroom.

As the need for intercultural communication courses gains more recognition and support in college and university curricula there are also growing concerns about effective methods for teaching the courses. The value of actual intercultural experiences as a strong component of an intercultural communication course should not be questioned. If, however, a college or university is located in a culturally homogeneous community, available campus resources can be used to enhance students' knowledge of ...

Diversity should be first understood from an individual's own culture. Yet few public relations professionals have had a course in interpersonal communication. If public relations is viewed as a profession where the management of people is important, then knowledge of diversity in the workplace seems imperative. The multicultural, intercultural, cross-cultural and international viewpoints add depth to a person's cultural studies...

The life of Nicholas Black Elk and the collaboration between him and John G. Neihardt on the book "Black Elk Speaks" presages or corresponds with current scholarly discussions of "transculturation." The diversity in society and the schools requires an enhancement of positive experiences in the inter-cultural "Contact Zones."

Today's nurses work and live in a multicultural society where they encounter patients whose backgrounds are different from theirs, and who need care from nurses who are both proficient in their work and knowledgeable about the role that culture plays in patient treatment.

A national language no longer suffices to satisfy all communication needs. Speech and language professionals must accept the presence of symbolic functions of foreign languages and linguistic influences...

Teachers and students need to "repack their suitcases" by revising, or re-envisioning, their metaphors of business, models of communication, conceptual frameworks of interculturalism and internationalism, and molds of professional identity. Popular business communication metaphors, most of which focus on the idea of competition, need to be replaced with dialogic models that depict communication as collaborative, contextual, and constructive...

"Cultural" is intended to signify not only the manifestations of group culture, or civilization, but also and more specifically the daily life and common experience of the group. Traditional teacher education is seen as emphasizing the former through its structure and content, and it is argued that an emphasis on teacher acculturation would be more a...

"Contrary-to-face-value" (CFV) messages, which can only be understood from a contextual instead of a text-based approach to communication, have caused many problems in communication between East Asians and North Americans. A typology of CFV communication, as identified in the Chinese culture, is proposed in this paper. Four forms of CFV communication are constructed on the basis of the following two dimensions of CFV communication: internal motivation (other-serving or self-serving) and external...
